10.4: Force Spotlight to reindex a drive - just be patient!
Authored by: romulis on Apr 30, '05 03:48:13AM

When I installed tiger yesterday the first thing I wanted to try was spotlight.
First it took about an hour to dig through all my files (80GB - full :-( ) and even then it didn't seem to find everything.

After playing around for a while I noticed that the results I was getting from spotlight got better and better. After about 2 hours it worked beautifully!

Even so, it looks like you need a plugin if you want to look for system files or things like korn shell scripts. (I'll be looking into that today)
